Juan Gonzalez came to the Cardinals highly recommended by Albert Pujols. In Juan Gone’s first at bat off of Johan Santana, he made Albert look like a genius. He took Santana deep to left center with two on and two out in his first at bat of the spring. Albert Pujols would add a solo shot in the 6th inning as well and the Cardinals beat the Mets 5-3, for their second time in as many days.
Adam Wainwright started for the Cardinals and gave up five singles and two runs over three innings of work.
